Utility Knives, Cutters & BladesView all 313 items
When we think of office cutting tasks, we may conjure up images of scissors, but scissors aren't the only tools used in a corporate environment to cut through materials. For items that can't easily fit between scissors' blades, use utility knives and cutters to get the job done quickly and safely. Whether they're being used to slash through shipped packages, cut the strings and rope on mailing pallets or break down boxes for space-saving recycling, utility knives and cutters are useful to keep on hand.
In order to make sure cuts are controlled and accurate, it's important that the cutting tool allows you to establish a secure grip. Look for utility knives that feature a rubberized, contoured handle to prevent fingers from slipping during use. Most utility knives are retractable for safe carrying in a pocket or holster. Some knives feature built-in blade storage, so you can keep a few replacement blades directly in the knife for fast blade switches.
Cutters are the simpler version of utility knives, offering a tap design that lets the blade come out and retract by just tapping the cutter's body. Cutters are ideal for bulky, high-volume cutting tasks. Because cutter blades typically have no locking mechanism, store them in tool boxes rather than pockets when they're not in use.
Dull blades are a liability which one can easily avoid. Make sure employees are safe and well-equipped for the task at hand by keeping replacement blades for utility knives and box cutters in the supply closet. Replacement blades often come in a pack of individual blades or as a long strip of breakaway blades that are intended solely for snap-off knives.
